Dakar-in­spired place of grand con­trasts

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Residential -

BUILT by Zorzi Builders, this home is a modern mas­ter­piece and a place of con­trasts; it is both aus­tere and op­u­lent, a fam­ily home and a su­perb en­ter­tainer.

It was in­spired by the style of the Villa Sow in Dakar and was built to cap­i­talise on the river and city views avail­able from the el­e­vated site and has panoramic vis­tas from the mid­dle and top level from Ap­ple­cross all the way to the Perth city sky­line.

Ver­sa­til­ity is a key fea­ture of the im­pres­sive res­i­dence.

A self-con­tained space on the base­ment level opens di­rectly to the pool area and can be used as a gym, games area, guest suite, or ex­ten­sion of the swim­ming pool en­ter­tain­ing space.

A cus­tom-made pivot front door opens to a ma­jes­tic en­try with views to a court­yard.

The lay­out leads to a roomy open-plan liv­ing/din­ing/kitchen area that opens to the court­yard and an in­cred­i­ble al­fresco area over­look­ing the pool and of­fer­ing stun­ning views.

It is an amaz­ing place to en­ter­tain fam­ily and friends and has been clev­erly de­signed with the bar­be­cue cook­ing space lo­cated in the court­yard to al­low for so­cial cook­ing, while also keep­ing smoke and aro­mas out of the al­fresco area.

An­other so­phis­ti­cated fea­ture is the rus­tic wine cel­lar with rough-cut tim­ber and steel wine racks.

The up­stairs chil­dren’s wing in­cludes three bed­rooms, each with an en­suite, a liv­ing area and pow­der room.

The mas­ter wing is a mag­nif­i­cent pri­vate re­treat for par­ents.

It has a lounge area, walk-in robe, open-plan en­suite with his-and-hers van­ity units, free­stand­ing bath and pic­ture win­dows that al­low city views from the shower.

You can also en­joy views over the tree­tops to the river and Mos­man

Park from your bed or step out to the pri­vate bal­cony.

The home has qual­ity fea­tures in­clud­ing sil­v­abella and black gran­ite bench­tops, Euro­pean oak floor­ing and Vin­tec and Miele ap­pli­ances.

It is on an 827sq m block, is close to cafes, restau­rants and bars, and a five-minute drive from the South Perth fore­shore.
